HE LIFTS US UP: Song for Abuse Victims

Diana Rasmussen: Walking Wounded

The word for today on WordPress is PERFORMANCE. Well, I want to share the song that God gave me one day about abuse victims. I have felt that He has a special love for all victims of abuse. He gave me the lyrics then brought another “overcomer” of abuse to write the music. I pray that God will bring this song to a famous singer one day who will stand with Diana and I to raise money to help victims of abuse and provide safe houses around the world for all victims to have their lives transformed by the Love of God…

Walking Wounded, the Song by Secret Angel and Diana Rasmussen



Psalm 147:3-7

“He heals the brokenhearted
And binds up their wounds.
 He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.
 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.
 The Lord lifts up the humble;
He casts the wicked down to the ground.

 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
Sing praises on the harp to our God.”

Diana (PrayersandPromises) and Secret Angel (Secretangelps911) met on WordPress. Having both come from a past of abuse, they have a lot in common. Secret Angel has written a book sharing her story, “THE WALKING WOUNDED”. Secret Angel wrote the poem “The Walking Wounded” and Diana put a portion of the poem to music. A portion of the proceeds of this song will benefit Secret Angel Ministry.

Diana is an established Singer/Songwriter and “Soul Survivor” with many TOP 10 Songs on the Indie charts at Broadjam, Inc.
Her songs focus on overcoming adversity, breaking free from domestic violence, and living beyond depression. Fans have called her songs, “haunting, powerful, and edgy”. Diana sounds like Annie Lennox and Bonnie Raitt, and there is a raw honesty about her lyrics. Diana has received many TOP 10 AWARDS from Broadjam, Inc. in the Country, Folk, Jazz, and World Categories.

Secret Angel’s book, “THE WALKING WOUNDED”, talks about how abuse happens and how victims become trapped in their situations. It brings understanding to the plight of victims as Secret Angel reveals her own true story, including how God intervened in her life and rescued her. “THE WALKING WOUNDED” is in publication currently and will be released in August of 2013, with a plan for the majority of proceeds to go into ministries that help victims of abuse.

Verbal abuse, he thinks its ok;
So destructive, done everyday.
He tears me down, to a point so low.
Fear sets in, I’ve no place to go.

So much hurt. So much pain.
“Walking Wounded”, that’s my name.
Hidden deep, where no one sees,
Scars of abuse, but who’d believe?

Behind closed doors, the truth’s exposed.
His attacks, where no one knows.
The wounds are real, but he’d deny.
And I’m too scared, to testify.

So much hurt. So much pain.
“Walking Wounded”, that’s my name.
Hidden deep, where no one sees,
Scars of abuse, but who’d believe?

His words are swords, they cut so deep.
But God sees all, and He can heal.

So much hurt. So much pain.
“Walking Wounded”, that’s my name.
Hidden deep, where no one sees,
Scars of abuse, but who’d believe?

Walking wounded, walking wounded, walking wounded.
